I celebrate both Christmas and Hanukkah. So I got stuff for Hanukkah already. I didn't actually get tickets to anything yet but I got lots of money. So in my eyes I got a lot because I will buy myself tickets with the money I got.

In The Heights Tickets- February (Lin's Last)
West Side Story Tickets February 28th (My Birthday!)
Guys and Dolls Tickets- Sometime in February
Lotto a few times for multiple shows

And I actually got Funny Lady and Cabaret DVDs!

I also got iTunes Gift Card and I bought Sunday OBC so far.

And Amazon gift card that I will most likely spend on some Broadway movie or CD or book.

Everything is based around Broadway this year.

I got a wonderful Broadway wall calendar and a raise, with which I will be going back to NY in February to see Billy Elliot again.

And we haven't had Christmas yet!

Howard sing Ashman. It's always great to hear how the songs were born. The Smile disc is peachy, Ashman and Hamlisch sing with so much vim and vigour, their enthusiasm is palpable, who knew from listening to this, it could end so badly.
The great thing with human brains is they're fanless, nice and quiet although I'm sure mine whistles a bit sometimes.

The one thing I asked for (a ticket to A Little Night Music) I've already been told I'm not getting. re: What Broadway stuff did you get for Christmas 2008? My parents were going to get it for me because they knew how much I wanted to go ~ it was the ONLY thing I had asked for ~ but they're both retired and their retirement funds took a big hit in the stock market crash, so Daddy's already said that I'm not getting it. re: What Broadway stuff did you get for Christmas 2008? They could surprise me, but since I was informed yesterday that I've got six boxes under the tree, I'm not counting on it.

So... I guess we'll see what happens.

I'm not getting anything theatre related from my family since they don't like theatre.

I got myself my own present though and that is happening on Friday. I'm seeing my favorite Elphaba in Wicked. Who happens to be in my pic on here.
Don't believe everything that you hear! Only the peeps involved know the truth!

My parents and I celebrated Christmas on Sunday cause my mom is working tonight, tomorrow and Friday and we're leaving for Florida on Saturday. I got a few gifts (all wonderful) but nothing broadway related. I actually treated myself to James Barbour's concert yesterday and boy was it worth it.
<--- the set of A Midsummer Night's Dream that I was assistant stage manager for during the 2007 season at the STNJ outdoor stage.

You must remember all the same that at the crux of every game is knowing when it's time to leave the table... And it's important to be artful in your exit. No turning back, you must accept the con is done... It was a ball, it was a blast. And it's a shame it couldn't last. But every chapter has to end, you must agree.
~Dirty Rotten Scoundrels~

There's a special kind of people known as show people. We live in a world full of dreams. Sometimes we're not too certain what's false and what's real. But we're seldom in doubt about what we feel.
~Curtains~

It is a far, far better thing I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest I go to, than I have ever known.

DefyGravity777 ~ I hope you enjoy your experience at Wicked! :) That sucks that your family won't get you things you would like just because they don't though. re: What Broadway stuff did you get for Christmas 2008?

If having my next month's trip's hotel paid asa Christmas present counts, I'lll be seeing two or three shows.

Also got last-minutes bus trip tickets to "White Christmas." Our local bus company had some cancellations, discounted them deeply (like half-price), so my partner and I thought ...what the hell. We had a sucky weekend last weekend, so some holdiay cheer won't hurt.

My 21st birthday was on Monday, for which I got a balcony ticket to A Little Night Music... plus lots and lots of drinks (not Broadway related but good nonetheless!). I can't wait for January!
